    Man... that first time I heard "Night of the Living Baseheads" and Chuck D's first line, "HERE IT IS BAM! AND YOU SAY GODDAMN, THIS IS A DOPE JAM!!!!" It was on a station from UCSC.

    This is when BMX just started really getting deep with street and urban riding, so I'd get amped up listening to P.E. and put black rainbows on walls (wall rides), feeble grind planter boxes and bunnyhop over garbage cans. Ultra aggressive music for a 13 yr. old Dion-boy on a BMX bike.

    OOH! And then when "Fight the Power" came out in 1989? Wow... nothing made us more amped for riding and ditching security guards. We were such little BMX asshøles!

    BMX, Public Enemy and Black Flag just worked really well together.
    Same here. I didn't really even know the music of LZ, Hendrix or any of the others mentioned until late in high school when I realized all the other white kids listened to classic rock, not Hip Hop. In terms of straight up Arena Rock type stuff, it's hard to argue with Zeppelin just based on their never ending catalog of songs. For me, Sabbath is definitely up there. Love their very bass/rhythm heavy sound. Different genre but I love me some Animals and WAR as well. I was very into My Morning Jacket a few years ago which had some LZ arena rock tendencies. Lot's of good music out there and I try to listen to as much as I can.

    The back stories on some of the Rick James/Eddie Murphy/Charlie Murphy hijinks are hilarious.

    I grew up in the same era, I'm in my mid 30's now.. Sounds just like my child hood. Listening to early rap, riding bmx, brake dancing and terrorizing the neighborhood, LOL! Every where we went we had our bmx bikes and some cardboard to brake dance on.
    Now that I'm older I don't like rap, but do like songs from the Doors, Hendrix, etc...
    My parents were old school strict mexican. I do remember when I was young riding my bike to the flea market and buying a Kiss 8 track. I went home and was blasting it. My parents came home and caught me listening to it. I got the holy crap beat out of me for listening to the devils music! Ah, the good old days!

    I saw LZ live at GG park and at a Day on the Green and they sucked massively both times. Robert Plant couldn't sing a note and what's his name was so high he could barely play is guitar. I was a big LZ fan but after those two experiences they were permanently bumped off my greatest list. For me I gotta go with the Stones for their body of work, ability to preform live and their ability to still produce relevant music and Pink Floyd for their body of work and preform live.

    This may be a total waste of time but I can't help but think that you might amount to something someday.

    That happened to me at the 2 different Jane's Addiction concerts I attended...still like em but will never pay to see em again. To refer to Jimmy Page as 'what's his name' however is blasphemous sir. (Like many rock gods live shows will be hit or miss...I stopped buying LZ live albums cause you never know what you are going to get...SRTS remains to be my all time favorite album)

    Then I guess you missed the December 1990 JA shows in SJ and SF where Primus and the Pixies opened, and JA headlined and ROCKED OUT with incredible performances! Too bad Perry's vocals have deteriorated so much since then...

    Great album, so many themes going simultaneously on that one. Much harder for most folks to latch on to.

    I see your final cut and raise you an Amused to Death sir!

    "we watched the tragedy unfold
    We did as we were told
    We bought and sold
    It was the greatest show on earth!
    . . . But then it was over . . .

    We oohed and awed
    We drove our racing cars
    Ate our last few jars of caviar
    And somewhere out in the stars
    A keen eyed look out spied a flickering light"

    • Parliament (Seen them at the Fillmore, they played for 6 hrs straight)
    • Twisted Sister (Who doesn't Want to Rock)
    An excellent live version of On the Turning Away is on the Delicate Sound of Thunder album. Takes me away from reality for a while - no substance assistance required

    Led Zeppelin and Iron Maiden are the two greatest rock bands of all time. Both are immortal.

    Love Rush, Zep, Floyd, Smashing Pumpkins, Sabbath, White Stripes, LivingColour, Public Enemy, Johnny Cash...

    But I'm with Ferrentino -- James Brown is the best mtb riding music. Nothing comes close. Good gawd!

    To honor some of you leaning Floyd, I rode to Pink Floyd Pandora moments ago. Playlist ended up with 33% Floyd, 33% Zeppelin, and 30% everyone else listed here (sort of).
